C.C. Sabathia will be back for a 10th season in the Bronx.
MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand cited a source saying the Yankees and C.C. Sabathia have agreed to a one year deal, worth a reported $10 million dollars pending a physical.
The 37-year old left hander was 14-5 with a 3.69 ERA last season. Sabathia pitched well in the post season including six shutout innings vs. Houston in game three of the American League Championship Series with the Yankees trailing at the time, two games to none.
Sabathia reportedly met with a couple of other teams but the Yankees were confident that he would return to the Bronx.
In nine seasons with the Yankees, Sabathia is 120-73 with a 3.75 ERA.
